The Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, will be arriving in Argentina on 21 November on an official visit after participating in the APEC summit, which will be held in Peru.
The visit will be an opportunity to strengthen the bilateral ties between Argentina and Japan in the fields of politics, economy, trade, investment and cooperation on topics such as science, technology, innovation, culture, and sports, among others.
President Mauricio Macri will hold a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Abe as well as an official lunch in honour of the distinguished guest. Several bilateral instruments will be signed, including a Memorandum on Cooperation for the establishment of a reinforced mechanism of political consultations.
Furthermore, a Joint Economic Forum will be held —organized by the Argentine Foreign Ministry, the Argentine Investment Agency, and the Japanese External Trade Organization— that will gather the most renowned business persons from Japan and Argentina to promote Japanese trade and investments based on the renewed business environment and the investment opportunities offered by Argentina.
The visit by Prime Minister Abe is the second visit of a Japanese Prime Minister to Argentina, the first one having been made by Abe’s grandfather, Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi, in 1959.
